Blu-ray Sales, June 23-29: 300 Conquers Number One Spot

Posted July 3, 2014 09:54 AM by Josh Katz

Blu-ray DiscFor the week that ended on June 29th, Warner's 300: Rise of an Empire took the top spot on the Blu-ray-only and overall package-media sales charts. This action epic - the sequel to the 2007 hit 300 - was a modest disappointment for the studio this past year. In addition to its mediocre critical notices (the film scored a 48% Metacritic ranking), Rise of an Empire went on to gross only $106 million domestically, a figure below its estimated $110-million production budget (that said, the picture performed much stronger overseas, earning an additional $224 million). For its first week of home media sales, 300: Rise of an Empire had a Blu-ray market share of 51%.

Next up on the Blu-ray-only and overall package-media lists was another Warner title, The LEGO Movie. Directors Chris Miller and Phil Lord's animated comedy has proved itself as one of 2014's breakout smashes; critics mostly praised the film (as its solid 82% Metacritic score indicates), which went on to gross over $467 million worldwide, a figure which becomes more impressive when one takes into consideration its estimated $60 million budget. The LEGO Movie sold 73% as many Blu-rays as 300: Rise of an Empire - and had a 39% HD market share - and 97% as many total units.

Finally, Universal's Lone Survivor rounded out the top three spots on the Blu-ray-only and overall package-media sales charts. Despite generating much controversy among critics - many in the critical community accused the the Peter Berg-directed war drama of jingoism, a condition that may have resulted in its 60% Metacritic score - Lone Survivor was a hit with audiences: the $40-million picture made over $149 million in worldwide grosses. This week, Lone Survivor had a Blu-ray market share of 42% and sold 13% as many Blu-rays as 300: Rise of an Empire. Regarding the overall package-media list, the film sold 16% as many units as Rise of an Empire.

Really? I don't believe this...the LEGO movie had to be number 1.

The LEGO Movie was much better than the square root of 300 movie.

Not sure if it's a good or bad thing, but got 6 of the top 10. (And just about always, I don't do cartoons.) Figured I'd give 300 sequel a shot, hadn't planned to, but got it for a decent price (match).

I'm honestly surprised 300 is selling that well. I didn't think it looked like it would live up to the first one...which it might not but for it to make money is a good thing! Maybe I'll pick it up if I can get it for 15 or less

Considering I found the first one to be average, and this one is meant to not even be as good, I have little interest in buying this.
